PJ Washington put together another monster stat line with 26 points, 12 rebounds and a perfect 3/3 from the three-point line.
Ashton Hagans added a solid stat line himself 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 8 assists while hitting a three-pointer, which is the second straight game that Hagans has hit an outside shot.
This really was just a game to sit back and relax and watch the Wildcats put on one hell of a performance. Now on to Florida.
Here’s what social media had to say about the Wildcats’ performance:

The announcers are so bored with this game that they have started playing jimmy dykes’ country music on air. This is the pinnacle of broadcasting.— Brent Wainscott (@BrentW_KSR) January 30, 2019
You know you are crushing a team when they interrupt the game to play Jimmy Dykes singing country songs— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) January 30, 2019
The #1 team in the country played at Vandy a week ago and had they not been bailed out by the worst officiating in the history of sports, would’ve lost.— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) January 30, 2019
Kentucky played at Vandy tonight and won by a million.
For what it’s worth.
Before the season I picked Kentucky to win the title, because I thought PJ Washington would an SEC Player of the Year type guy. In his last three games, Washington is averaging 21 points and 10 boards per game. If Kentucky gets THIS PJ Washington, not many teams beating them— Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) January 30, 2019
